First plates in a long time

It’s been over a year since I made any wet plate collodion pictures. I did two shoots on Friday in Deering Oaks Park in Portland. One was for fun, one for fun and a bit of profit. Here’s some plates from the former. The latter are already boxed and ready to ship.

The North Pond Hermit

Troy and Hook sing the North Pond Hermit Song.

So this isn’t the best song I’ve ever written. But it’s the best song I wrote this week about a hermit. You can read all about the real North Pond HermitĀ HERE.

I’m a newspaper man by trade. I deal with facts and truth. But I’m also a lover of folk songs, ballads and legends. Ballads, sung by folks, passed around, changed here and there were the newspapers of their day. It only seemed fitting that this man, who has captured the imaginations of a whole state, get his own ballad. I didn’t work very long or very hard at this. It just kind of fell out onto the table.
